Liberty Hotel also has 298 super luxurious guest rooms.

The Edison

What once used to be the first LA power plant is now one of the city’s most iconic saloons. The Edison’s bar is a piece of a living history celebrating the science, art, and industry. The bar is a blend of the past that presents the future in a cozy and unique environment.

Reilly Craft

Location: Tucson, AZ

This bar has a little creepy history because it was once a funeral home. That’s why the owners call it the “Tough Luck Club”. However, never mind the dark past as today this is a bar with a relaxing atmosphere and excellent menu.

The Airplane Restaurant

Location: Colorado Springs, CO

What was once a fully operational military Boeing KC-97 tanker used for missions in Europe is now an awesome restaurant. Here, you can enjoy cocktails named “jet fuel”, „Canadian Bomber” and “Arctic B-52”. Just think about it, you can order food and drinks from the stewards at the half of the price you are supposed to pay at the real plane.
